Recently I decided to participate in a challenge that was designed to help people step out of their comfort zones in a number of different ways.
There were 21 challenges from Activating Google Analytics (Challenge #1 and one that I decided to tackle) to Hosting a Virtual Summit or Participating in a Bundle Sale or Giveaway or even create a TikTok of Twitch account. Those of us who signed up could choose 1 or all of the challenges to complete during the month of September.
We were given opportunities to attend live training (or watch it as a replay), to join with others in discussion of the challenges, to congratulate those who finished them and give support to those who were stuck.
Initially I thought I might take on 3 challenges as this was my first year and I had heard of others who had participated in the past taking on a few challenges. I thought I would do the Analytics, then go on to do a “Content Refresh” and then “Create a Small & Mighty Gift Report”. I also considered Volunteering or Applying to Speak, Participating in a Bundle Sale and Creating a Tripwire offer. However, I found myself challenged by the Google Analytics and am still working on that.
Have you ever found yourself wanting to challenge yourself in some way?
Have you found yourself afraid to reach out to groups to volunteer to speak on a particular topic, or to seek paid opportunities?
Do you have a blog where you highlight your expertise? (That is challenge #2 by the way)
What about holding a webinar to share your knowledge? (Challenge #6)
Although the initial “live” invitation is over, you can still get a copy of the SYC (Stretch Yourself Challenge) in a Self-Study version so that you can tackle the challenges on your own. However, you are not completely on your own as you can join the forum and chat with other who are taking on the same challenges. You can reach out to some of the people who are organizing Mini Summits and offer to be a speaker. You can start your own Facebook group if you don’t already have one.

Wondering how successful this challenge is? Kelly McCausey’s Stretch Yourself Challenge is celebrating a 11th Anniversary in 2020.
Why do I recommend Kelly’s Stretch Yourself Challenge? Because the Challenge is focused on Content Marketing Activities that will stretch you out of your comfort zone and help you reach more of the people you long to serve.
Why not join me and the many others who are stretching ourselves this year.
P.S. I highly recommend Stretch Yourself Challenge
